Before completing the online entry form, you will need to have a single PDF document prepared for each of your entries (maximum 10MB for each entry). In order to impress our judges and create an entry worthy of success, make sure to cover all of the four steps listed below.

Struggling to craft the content, layout, and design of your entry? Download the entry and information guide to help you decide what to include and how to shape your submission.

STEP ONE - Entry summary

Please provide a short 300-word summary of your entry that includes:

  • Details of the category you are entering into*
  • A brief description of the organisation and what they do
  • A synopsis of the work
  • The project’s relevance to the category it is being entered into
  • Industry context – what is the company’s place within the market?
  • Budget (optional)

*If you feel this work is a perfect candidate and strong contender for more than one category, the summary should be tailored accordingly.

Note: We advise that the submission includes a guide on the project brief, budget and time frame to help put the project into context for the judges.

STEP TWO - Entry statement

Write a project summary statement of no more than 800 words. The statement should cover objectives, the research and planning behind the submission, the creativity and innovation, strategy and implementation, and results.

Below in this guide you will find useful questions to consider when writing your entry statement. The judges will be scoring on these components (objective, research and planning, creativity and innovation, strategy and implementation and results) so it is important to ensure you cover these areas clearly and effectively within your entries.

  • Context
  • Challenge
  • Strategy/implementation
  • Innovation
  • Functionality and accessibility (if applicable)
  • Results

STEP THREE - Supporting materials

Including supporting materials strengthens your entry by providing evidence of your achievements. Materials should illustrate your work and aid the narrative of your entry statement. It is best to include only those materials that are directly relevant to the specific category.

  • Images illustrating the project or campaign
  • Press coverage (up to five examples)
  • Social coverage (up to five examples)
  • Video (up to three minutes, please include a link in the entry rather than sending the video file)
  • Statistics: any relevant statistics (optional)
  • Client feedback
  • Testimonials

Usually, if you are entering a category with a printed report, we recommend that you post a hard copy of the report to us by the entry deadline. However, we appreciate that for sustainability, less reports are being printed, so you are welcome to send a pdf version of your printed report so that we can distribute this to our judges. Judges do like to look through a printed report, so if you'd like to post a copy to us, send it to: 

Lauren Ditcher, Unit 7K 26-32 Voltaire Road, London, SW4 6DH



Note: We do not accept video files, so please include links within your entry pdf (with log in details if necessary.) Please ensure there are no expiration dates on video links.
